I think he gets the betas directly from a beta tester it probably is real.

Right and the most NDAs say also ist not allowed to talk about it

with 9.4 videoproblems with compiz are gone
gtkperf delivers much better results
quakewars runs smoother
(thats compared to 9.2)
9.4 is no disappointment at all
Sounds good. I can't wait. I got "some" problems with 9.2.

OMG, this 9.4 RC1 driver is awesome. KDE 4.2 resizing is fixed! Its very very fast, no latency at all and with composition on.
XV video with compositing also works very smooth now. I don't got misplaced video output or anything odd. I don't even get crashes when playing a video in fullscreen??? :O
Is this really the driver version we have waited so long for? Is this really THE driver without disappointments?
Everyone waiting for this driver to be released really has something to be excited over.
<<If this is something I should not be talking about, feel free to delete my post. I don't know how phoronix / ati takes thiese discussions.>>
Actually resizing with compositing seems a lot faster than without composition :P That said, resizing isn't slow without compositing, don't worry.

I guess you have not signed an NDA anyway so you are probably free to blab on. That said, how does suspend/resume, --set-powerstate and multiple screens work? The 2.6.29 linux kernel?
